Hyundai's Modern Jeepney Class 1 is the Most Affordable One Yet

The most complaint with the government’s PUV Modernization program is how unaffordable it is to some cooperatives. Now that Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) is entering the game, the Korean carmaker is bringing forth an offering that’s much more affordable yet remains people-centric, fuel-efficient, and innovative.

Based off the H-100, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is a collaboration between HARI and Hyundai Motor Company in Korea. It can accommodate 12 passengers (plus 1 driver) thanks to a long wheelbase.

Powered by a 2.5-liter CRDi diesel engine, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 has 130 horsepower and 255 Nm of torque. It’s also mated to a 6-speed manual providing superb fuel economy.

Staying true to its promise of smart mobility, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is also engineered to have a load-sensing proportional valve (LSPV) control, which provides optimal braking stability as fluid pressure is controlled according to the loading ratio.

The Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 can also be fitted with optional features such as a modern digital signboard that provides better visibility for potential passengers, CCTV monitor, surveillance cameras and reverse cameras that enhance both the passengers’ and driver’s safety and security when out on the road, optional WiFi router for better connectivity, and two (2) AFCS systems for easy payment and collection of the passengers’ fare.

The Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 retails for P 1,298,000 for the non-AC version and P 1,380,000 for the dual AC version.
